CLC and STAMPlorations


Hey, Hey, Happy Friday!  The best day of the week is always better when Coffee hops are involved am I right?  Lucky for you, this is one of those weeks.  CLC is collaborating with STAMPlorations!  And of course it comes along with PRIZES and a SALE!  Read on to learn more.  

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Kerry Urbatch's blog.  If not, I recommend you can go back to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to start from the beginning. 

Here is my card for today's hop:


This card features the most awesome Zen Coffee 2 cover plate!  This plate is swoon-worthy and offers so many possibilities!  I wanted to use it with a rainbow of colors but didn't want to be prescriptive about what color went where.  So my strategy involved cutting this plate in 7, that's right, SEVEN different colors.  I started by cutting the first five layers.  I wanted the pink layer in the front so I poked out pretty much every cut out.  I continued to cut and poke out pieces randomly, leaving more in with each layer.  When I was able to get the first five layers as I wanted them I adhered them together.  I then decided I needed more indigo and purple, so I cut them and added the pieces in randomly.  Once I had the basic structure I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee Happy stamp set onto a bit of vellum.  I cut it into a small square and added it over my cup.  Wahlah!  Happiness in a Cup!

I want to send you onto Kathy Schweinfurth's blog, BUT before you go, make note:

STAMPlorations is giving away a $25 gift certificate.  Just comment on all participating blogs by 8/3 at 11:55 pm PT and you are in the running!
